  • Football Team's Montez Sweat: Lands on IR

    Washington has placed Sweat (jaw) on injured reserve, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

    Sweat is expected to be sidelined four-to-six weeks with a fractured jaw, so his trip to the IR is unsurprising. Defensive end Olubunmi Rotimi was called up from the practice squad in a corresponding move, but some combination of James Smith-Williams and Shaka Toney will likely see the increased snaps in Sweat's absence.

  • Football Team's Montez Sweat: Out Sunday

    Sweat (jaw) will not play in Washington's Week 10 contest against the Buccaneers, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

    Sweat suffered a jaw fracture during Washington's Week 8 loss to the Broncos. The defensive end is not going to need surgery, but he is expected to miss at least a game. Expect Casey Toohill and Shaka Toney to see larger roles against Tampa Bay in Week 10.

  • Football Team's Montez Sweat: Out for 4-6 weeks

    Sweat (jaw) is expected to miss four-to-six weeks, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

    The 25-year-old pass rusher suffered a fractured jaw during Washington's Week 8 loss to the Broncos. Prior to that, Sweat played at least 65 percent of defensive snaps in each game this season, recording 19 tackles, 12 QB hits and four sacks in eight appearances. While Washington's defense has obviously taken a big step back compared to last year, Sweat's pass-rushing production looks pretty similar to 2020 (9.0 sacks, 20 QB hits). His absence for the next month-plus could allow James Smith-Williams to make his first career start, but there's also the option of giving DT Jonathan Allen some snaps at end.

  • Football Team's Montez Sweat: Set to miss a couple weeks

    Sweat suffered a jaw fracture during Washington's Week 8 loss and is expected to miss at least the next couple of weeks, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

    Sweat suffered a nondisplaced fracture during Washington's loss to Denver but he is not going to need surgery. The defensive end is supposed to avoid physical contact for the next four weeks, meaning that Casey Toohill and Shaka Toney will be forced into larger roles on Washington's defensive line. Sweat could be looking at a return in early December when the Football Team takes on the Raiders in Week 13.

  • Football Team's Montez Sweat: Cleared for Week 1

    Sweat (illness) isn't listed on Washington's injury report Wednesday.

    Sweat was forced to miss Washington's preseason opener against the Patriots with an ailment, but as anticipated, he returned to full health well before the start of the regular season and will be ready to go for Sunday's game against the Rams. The 25-year-old led Washington with nine sacks last season, combining with 2020 No. 2 overall pick Chase Young (7.5 sacks) to form one of the top young edge-rushing duos in the league.
